    Cambelt

    Is the recommended cambelt replacement on a 3.0 diesel 110k or 10 years? Seeing a lot of 2010 cars coming up at amazing prices. Probably because people don't want the expense. Some only have under 50k on them, it's just the 10 year thing.

    I think it's amazing just how many miles we travel these days ?.....I'm seeing 5 .6 years old cars with 200.000 on clock for sale ?...The age of the car does not come into it !

    I watched an interesting programme recently where a certain car dealership that only sells cars under 3 years old...And the mileage was on average under 20.000 miles..
    It transpired that the company buys lease cars and and "clocks them" ....?..This being confirmed by a man who was picked up by a driver in a car that showed 20.000 miles on the clock ...He said he used to drive that car as a chauffeur and it had 150.000 on the clock 1 year ago ? When he drove it ??

    Hi, a good indie will do the cambelt for about £350 so I fail to see how it will greatly affect the price of a used car. Phil

    I don't think it affects the value of the car to most people but it's probably true that it's a catalyst for a lot of people to swap out. Doesn't make any rational sense but lots of people are toying with changing at 10 years anyway (psycological limit like 100k miles) and they see the cambelt bill looming on top of the regular servicing costs and don't want to spend that, only to trade the car a few months later, giving the new buyer the benefit.
    Daft really as in my experience, the trade in value will simply be adjusted down if you don't have it done (the dealer was very insistent that I must provide proof of the cambelt change on the Jeep before he'd take it for the agreed price.). I guess it's a good negotiation point on either side.

    It's not so much the miles done it is more to do with the rubber starting to perish and that's down to age and miles, so 10yrs is about right, could go on for another 100,000 mls without a problem but if it goes you will be faced with a big big bill. Not worth the risk imo I'm getting mine done this year for peace of mind more than anything else.
    When I die I want to go like my Granddad, peacefully in his sleep, not screaming like the people on the back seat.

    I'm confused. Does a 2010 XF 3.0 D S have a cambelt or chain ?

    It has a belt, the 4.2 and 5.0 petrol have chains. Phil

    Even Jaguar will do it for around £600 on the 3+ fixed price. So no real biggy, it's about the same cost as my last set of Tyres, I wish they would last 10 years
